Removing the tank is not a biggie. Just make sure you carefully remove the fuel line or you can tear your gas line and get a new problem to solve. Also use Locktite. I didn't on my last starter and it snapped off at one of the lower bolt tabs.

Remove the flywheel housing, you don't need it, now you have a view of everything including when you engage it if you get that far.

fuel tank is easier to remove than the starter, 2 screws and a 1 fuel connection, done. maybe have some 1/4" i.d. fuel line just in case old one is breaks due to age. fuel tank might be in the way if installing starter so its a no brainer to remove it if thats the case.

Bought a dead but now fixed 1980ish craftsman II 10/28....ITS ONE HEAVY BEAST

Yay!! Thank you all for your help & suggestions - WE WON!
After removing the fuel tank, I was able to (with a little force & jiggle) slip the starter into place and screw in the bolts with a thread locker. Put the fuel tank back on and starter worked great.
The lower bolts that came with the replacement starter were metric so I had to go buy an open end 10mm wrench.
THANK YOU All again.
Jim

In the Kitchener area, if you are interested.......
Hi there contender, if you still have that Tecumseh starter, I would be happy to take it off your hands. Let me know how much you would sell it for? I am new to the forum, wanted to say thanks for all the tips
